Exhausting. Tiring. Old. Irritating.
(Ringo can't even hold up both arms anymore)
We're understaffed on SLOW days. No kidding. And that was before our head teller wound up in the hospital. See, she decided to get a second job delivering newspapers at 0:dark:30 in the morning, and well, she thinks she fell asleep at the wheel, so now her car is totaled and she is in a trauma unit. Sad, sad news. This just happened, so I don't know the details of her condition yet.
All the branches are understaffed right now, but not like we are. It's a push, it's a puzzle, it's a pain. It takes a lot of problem solving to figure out how to get all the obligatory work and chores done while customers are coming in the door and the phones are ringing.
We are all getting overtime, which the company doesn't like to give, but it's unavoidable; it's hard to take a real lunch break and often impossible to leave exactly when we're supposed to.
So. That's the work news for now. We are supposed to get a couple new part timers, but it will be three to four weeks before they actually arrive. I made them sound like a package coming from Sears, didn't I?
This shall pass, this shall pass, this shall pass....
